Gilbert City Court / Gilbert Municipal Court – – Regular DUI / Misdemeanor DUI / Second Time Regular DUI / Extreme DUI / Second Time Extreme DUI / Super Extreme DUI / Second Time Super Extreme DUI – Arizona Revised Statutes 28-1381 & 28-1382

The Gilbert Municipal Court (AKA Gilbert City Court) is located near Gilbert Rd., between Warner Rd. & Ray Rd. It sits in a court complex with the Highland Justice Court and the Gilbert Police Department.

The Gilbert City Court is known for being one of the harsher court systems. It is not uncommon for a plea offer to allow for up to 180 days of jail to hang over a person’s head as an incentive to do well on probation, pay off all the fines and fees, and successfully complete the counseling classes. Nearly all other court systems do not place such a huge hammer hanging over someone’s head as an incentive to do everything they are expected to do.

This is why it is so important to not only have a Defense Lawyer who is familiar with the Gilbert Court system, but an experienced DUI Defense Lawyer, who can protect their clients to ensure the best chance of a beneficial outcome.

All cases are different, and each case has its pros and cons, but when the charge is DUI, and the court is Gilbert, it is especially important to have an experienced DUI Defense Lawyer on your side. Criminal Defense Lawyer is not the same as DUI Defense Lawyer. DUI Defense Representation is a specialized area of the law, and really necessitates an Attorney who focuses solely on DUI Representation.

The AZ DUI Team focuses SOLELY on DUI Defense Representation, as well as other Vehicular-Related offenses. In Gilbert City Court, the AZ DUI Team offers representation on the following charges:

Underage Driving with Alcohol in the body (AKA Baby DUI / AKA Under 21 DUI / AKA Underage DUI) – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(34)

Of course each case is different, and the facts of each case plays a huge role in what can happen on the case, but another huge factor is who the DUI Attorney is, and what they can see in a case that a less experienced DUI lawyer might miss. This is why it is so important to have experienced, quality DUI Defense Representation.

The Mesa Municipal Court (AKA Mesa City Court) is located close to Main St. & Mesa
Dr., near downtown Mesa. Mesa, itself, is considered one of the more Conservative
areas, which can come with its own challenges whenever a case goes to trial with a “jury
of one’s peers,” who happen to also be Mesa Residents. This is why it is so important to
have an experienced DUI Lawyer who focuses on DUI Defense Representation. The AZ
DUI Team represents the following cases in Mesa City Court:

cross streets being Main St & Mesa Dr. Phone: (480) 644-2255.

Mesa prosecutors seem to be a bit tougher than other courts. They tend to want to tack
on additional jail time, and some additional fines and fees you don’t otherwise see in
other courts in Maricopa County. This is why it is so important to have experienced,
quality DUI Defense Representation.

Having the right DUI Defense Lawyer can be the difference between a Guilty or Not
Guilty verdict; or could be the difference between a DUI and a Reckless Driving
conviction.

Mesa is one of the few courts where it is possible to get a Reckless Driving plea
agreement in lieu of a DUI conviction, but it is very difficult, and, of course, depends on
the facts of each case. This is why it is so important to have the right DUI Lawyer on
your side.

DUI is a specialized area of the law, and it is especially important to have a DUI Attorney
who focuses on DUI Defense Representation.

Scottsdale City Court / Scottsdale Municipal Court – – Misdemeanor DUI / Regular DUI / Second Time Regular DUI / Extreme DUI / Second Time Extreme DUI / Super Extreme DUI / Second Time Super Extreme DUI – Arizona Revised Statute 28-1381 & 28-1382

The Scottsdale Municipal Court (AKA Scottsdale City Court) is located near Old Town Scottsdale and the Ballpark in Downtown Scottsdale.With all the bars and restaurants serving alcohol on Scottsdale Road in Old Town Scottsdale, there are plenty of arrests due to DUI Task Forces concentrated in this area.Also, because Scottsdale is considered an “upscale” area, it is important that anyone facing a DUI charge protect themselves from the economic “needs” of the Scottsdale City Budget. It is no surprise that DUI Task Forces tend to occur very often in the Scottsdale Area, and many Scottsdale residents and visitors find themselves in Scottsdale City Court facing DUI charges, which can include:

Minor in Possession of Alcohol – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(41)

Underage Driving with Alcohol in the body (AKA Baby DUI / AKA Underage DUI / AKA Under 21 DUI) – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(34)

Regular DUI – Commercial License – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1381(A)(4)

2nd Time Regular DUI – Commercial License – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1381(A)(4)

The Scottsdale City Court is located at 3700 N 75th St, Scottsdale, AZ 85251, with the closest cross streets being Drinkwater Blvd. & 2nd St., in downtown Scottsdale. Phone: (480) 312-2442.

Despite, or maybe because of, Scottsdale’s population, there are some interesting potential advantages to having a DUI charged in Scottsdale City Court, rather than a different city’s City Court.

The trick is, knowing your judge, knowing your prosecutor, and figuring out what is the best way to handle the case. This is a special feature of Scottsdale, but only in certain courts, and only with certain judges.

This is where experience and knowledge comes into play. A motion being argued in one judge may yield a different result than a motion argued in front of a different judge. More importantly, taking responsibility, if necessary, in front of one judge can be very different than taking responsibility in front of another judge.

One other potential benefit of a Scottsdale DUI case is the potential to get a plea offer for something other than DUI. Unlike some other City Courts, it is possible to negotiate down a DUI charge to something more beneficial, such as, possibly, Reckless Driving.

Again, this is achieved through experience, and knowing what to say and who to talk to.
This is why it is incredibly important to have an experienced DUI Lawyer representing you on a Scottsdale DUI case. When facing a DUI in Scottsdale Municipal Court, you want to have an Attorney who focuses on DUI Representation, not just some criminal lawyer who dabbles in DUI Law in between their shoplifting and assault cases.

The Tempe Municipal Court (AKA Tempe City Court) is located in downtown Tempe, near ASU and just off of Mill Avenue.With its proximity to the campus, and with a Tempe Police Station sharing the same complex, it is no surprise that Arizona State University Students are often found before one of the judges at the Tempe City Court on alcohol related charges, often including:

Minor in Possession of Alcohol – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(41)

The Tempe City Court is located at 140 E. 5th St., Tempe, AZ 85281, with the closest cross streets being 5th St. & Forrest Avenue, in downtown Tempe. Phone: (480) 350-8271.

The Tempe City Court is a bit different than most other City, Municipal, or Justice Courts in Maricopa County, Arizona. This distinction between Tempe and most other courts is why it is important to have an experienced DUI Defense Lawyer representing you on your DUI case in Tempe.

There are certain provisions in the law that nearly all other courts in Maricopa County County will follow…. but not Tempe. For example, there is an ability for a person charged with Extreme DUI or Super Extreme DUI to have time deducted from a sentence for installing and maintaining an Ignition Interlock Device in any vehicle that is operated for one year. Tempe City Court Judges will not permit the utilization of this benefit.

The theory from the Tempe Municipal Court Judges is that the court has no way to ensure that a person convicted of a DUI has truly installed and maintained an Ignition Interlock Device on their vehicle in order to warrant the reduction in sentence, therefore they simply will not allow DUI Defendants to utilize the benefit.

Without that benefit being available on Tempe DUI cases, it is important to have a Tempe DUI Lawyer who is not only aware of this situation in the Tempe City Courts, but knows how to ensure that if their client is convicted of a DUI, or will be pleading Guilty to a DUI, what can otherwise be done to prevent a DUI Defendant from doing an unreasonable jail term.

This is why it is so important for someone charged with a Tempe DUI to get an experienced Tempe DUI Attorney. Being represented by a Tempe Criminal Lawyer is not the same as being represented by a Tempe DUI Lawyer.

DUI is a specialized area of the law, and it is especially important to have a DUI Lawyer who focuses on DUI Defense Representation.

Phoenix City Court / Phoenix Municipal Court – – Misdemeanor DUI / Regular DUI / Extreme DUI / Super Extreme DUI / 2nd Time Regular DUI / 2nd Time Extreme DUI / 2nd Time Super Extreme DUI – Arizona Revised Statute 28-1381 & 28-1382

The Phoenix Municipal Court (AKA Phoenix City Court) is where nearly all Misdemeanor DUI cases where the arrest occurred within the Phoenix city limits will go. The only exceptions include when an arrest was done by a Department of Public Safety or Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Deputy. In those situations, it is possible that your DUI in the city limits of Phoenix would be heard before a Justice Court rather than Phoenix City Court. The other possible exception could be that if DUI was charged along with a Felony Criminal or Vehicular Offense, then the DUI might be heard in Maricopa County Superior Court.

Phoenix Municipal Court is one of the largest City Court Complexes in the State of Arizona. It has approximately 20 judges that oversee all charges of Misdemeanor DUI, including:

Underage Driving with Alcohol in the body (AKA Baby DUI / AKA Underage DUI / AKA Under 21 DUI) – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(34)

Minor in Possession of Alcohol – Arizona Revised Statute §4-244(41)

Regular DUI – Vapor Releasing Substances Impaired – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1381(A)(1)

Regular DUI – Blood Alcohol Content Above .08 – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1381(A)(1)

Extreme DUI – Blood Alcohol Content Above .15 – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1382(A)(1)

Super Extreme DUI – Blood Alcohol Content Above .20 – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1382(A)(2)

The Phoenix Municipal Court is located at 300 W Washington St, Phoenix, AZ 85003, with the closest cross streets being Washington St. & 4th Avenue, in downtown Phoenix. Phone: (602) 262-6421.

One of the biggest downsides to Phoenix Municipal Court is in the way that the Phoenix City Prosecutors interpret Arizona Law. It simply is not possible to get something less than a DUI either by way of a plea agreement or at trial. Something like Reckless Driving, which can be a possible plea agreement in other city courts, is not possible in Phoenix City Court.

This is an incredibly important reason why anyone charged with a DUI in Phoenix Municipal Court wants to have an experienced DUI Defense Lawyer, who is familiar with the ins and outs of how Phoenix City Court operates.

Because there is no ability to “plea down” to a Reckless Driving, or any other type of offense, other than a DUI, you want to make sure that you have someone on your side that focuses on DUI Defense, and knows the hidden benefits of Phoenix Municipal Court, and some of the hidden programs that could take something like months in jail, and reduce it down to a few weeks in jail.

Or, if trial truly is your best option, you want to make sure that you have your best shot of winning through pre-trial motions, or arguing for Innocence or Not Guilty in front of a jury.

You want to have a DUI Attorney who is focused on DUI Defense, not someone who only dabbles in DUI Defense when they are not representing people on their divorces, bankruptcies, or criminal charges. A DUI Lawyer is not the same as a Criminal Lawyer.

If you are charged in Phoenix City Court, you want an Attorney who is experienced and focused on DUI Defense Representation. Your best change of success is with an AZ DUI Team Lawyer on your side.

The Maricopa County Superior Court is where all Felony DUI (AKA Aggravated DUI) cases go for trial.  This is also whether all Vehicular Endangerment, Vehicular Aggravated Assault, Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular 2nd Degree Murder, Vehicular Manslaughter, Hit & Run (AKA Leaving the Scene) and Felony Flight cases go for trial, if charged as a Felony.The Maricopa County Superior Court complex is located in Downtown Phoenix, at 201 W. Jefferson St., Phoenix, AZ 85002.  The closest cross streets are Jefferson St. & Central.

While the Maricopa County Superior Court complex is made up of an “East Court Building,” a “West Court Building,” a Central Court Building,” and a South Court Tower, all Aggravated DUIs cases that are heading towards trial are handled at the Central Court Building, including charges for:

Aggravated DUI – License – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1383(A)(1)
Aggravated DUI – 3rd in Time – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1383(A)(2)
Aggravated DUI – Child Under the Age of 15 – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1383(A)(3)
Aggravated DUI – Ignition Interlock Device – Arizona Revised Statute §28-1383(A)(4)

All Aggravated DUI (AKA Felony DUI) trials in Maricopa County, Arizona, are overseen by one of two Commissioners:  Commissioner Phemonia Miller, in Courtroom 802 of the Central Court Building; and  Commissioner Jerry Bernstein, in Courtroom 902 of the Central Court Building.

Having two specific judges oversee all Aggravated DUI cases is the exception in Maricopa County, not the rules, because Aggravated DUI charges are considered a specialized field.  While most other charges in the Maricopa County Superior Court can be heard by any judge that is assigned the case, and may get transferred between different judges in the Maricopa County Court System, Aggravated DUI cases are different.

An Aggravated DUI case should ONLY go before one of these two Commissioners, and will stay in front of that assigned Commissioner for all court appearances, motions, and trial, and sentencing (if necessary).

Because Maricopa County considers Aggravated DUI cases to be so specialized, and has assigned two specific judges to keep on top of all the changes to DUI laws and case law on the subject, it is especially important to have a DUI Lawyer… not a Criminal Lawyer, but a DUI Lawyer, to represent you on your Aggravated DUI case in Maricopa County Superior Court.
